I spent part of this last week in Kansas City getting my house ready to put on the market. It is now for sale, and I am really hoping it will sell by the end of the summer. I have a much better realtor this time around, so I am hopeful.

The Printers Row Book Fair was this weekend (it’s a whole two blocks from where we live). I finally got to meet some people from the Chicago Writers Association that I knew only through email. I met Lynn and bought her book, Excited Light. I also bought a few other books: a mystery by another Chicago writer J. A. Konrath’s Rusty Nail, along with Chef’s Healthy Desserts, Myths and Motifs in Literature, and Drawing: The Complete Course. One of the things I want to do is draw and paint, so it’s time to get a little instruction on it.

I have decided to start editing Career Women of the Bible into a book format and get a book proposal worked up. If you have any suggestions to make the series more readable, please let me know in the comments or via email (see contact page). I know it is still very much on the scholary side and needs a lot of rewriting. I also want to put more narrative in, so the pieces read more like a story than a term paper.
